As a traditional elevated bungalow, the only practical way to increase square footage was to go up into the loft space. A dormer loft conversion to both the front and back of the property, allowed for the bedrooms to be moved to the first floor and create a larger living space downstairs, turning it from a one-story bungalow to a two-story property. In this Ilkley property the home the owner was looking for a way to maximize the space for their growing family.
By using dormer style loft conversion, it allowed for a huge amount of natural light to flood into the rooms, making a light and bright space that really maximise the new rooms. The dormer style loft conversion has meant that the loft conversion does not feel dark and compact, as the loft conversion has maximum head height.
The substantial amount of space by adding a dormer loft conversion instantly increased the value of the property and provided the family with the much-needed additional space. It really benefitted the owner to maximize the space available to him instead of buying a larger property with an already significantly higher price tag on.
